midfr0st was smoking a cigarette just below a DiMavia logo, yesterday he had scouted the area and reluctantly decided to set his plan to action.
Here they come, he thought as some employees were returning from lunch. His back was aching, the better part of yesterday he had spent to create the outfit he was now wearing. He had gone to a hardware store and bought some paint cans and working clothes. midfr0st had “aged” the clothes to his best effort by trashing them and splashing paint on them. He had been crouched on the floor for hours and was paying the price today. midfr0st threw his cigarette to the pavement and stepped on it just as the employees walked past him. He pulled down his baseball cap and followed them into the building, in his hands he had two buckets of paint and something that from the outside looked like a toolbox.
The receptionist looked up at the approaching crowd and smiled, her gaze swept by midfr0st. For a moment his heart skipped a beat, but she didn’t take any notice of him. A man held an rfid key above a sensor and a small gate swung open, the group walked through the gate. midfr0st was close to panic as he saw the gate beginning to close. He was about to turn around and leave when a woman looked over her shoulder straight at him. When she saw that he had both hands occupied, she held the gate for him to pass through.
“Thank you” he whispered as he walked by trying to avoid eye contact. midfr0st slowed down and allowed the group to walk away from him.
He wasn’t sure of where he was going, he just knew which side of the building he wanted to aim for. While walking around he mostly just tried to avoid people. It was hard to avoid everyone and soon he started to relax. I’m invicible, midfr0st realized as people was walking passed him seemingly without taking any notice at all.
Soon he saw an office door with a yellow post-it note, “On Conference Until Next Monday”. midfr0st walked into the office and shut the door behind him. He opened his toolbox and produced a wireless router, crawled under the desk and unplugged the Ethernet cable from the computer and connected it to a switch port on the router. He took another cable from his toolbox and connected it to the switch port and the computer, after connecting some power to the wireless device he placed it on the computer hoping no one would see the intruding object.
midfr0st left the room and headed for the exit. If they’re using some layer 2 NAC, the timeframe will be too short for this to work anyway and all I’ll have lost is a wireless router.
